Whoa!  Prepare for Lakeland overload!  David Rubenstein has been packing away a boatload of photos that he took while attending Lakeland races from 1968 until the end.  You'll notice rather quickly that David is an avid Funny Car fan and he captured the most popular racers of the day.  A big thanks to David for sharing his collection.

David attended the 1977 IHRA Winston National Event that is featured on the WHBQ page so some of his photos also appear there as well.

All photos are thumbnailed.  Click them to enlarge and use your back button to return here.  Enjoy the ride!
